Austria-Hungary were having difficulty controlling Serbia (one of their colonies) when Russia decided to defend Serbia against them, and as they were evidently struggling with these many countries that were against them, Germany decided to act on their alliance with Austria and team up with them against Russia. Alliances in the late 19th century were a form of defence – countries used them in the hopes that other countries would not attack them, knowing them were defended with alliances. They were a method of which European countries practiced the foreign policy known as protectionism.
